Shug’s Soda Fountain should be your go-to for dessert near Pike Place. They serve classics like New York-style egg creams and banana splits, but also more modern creations like prosecco sorbet floats and a s’mores hot fudge sundae made with housemade marshmallows (they roast these in front of you with a blowtorch - you want to experience this). Head there for dessert after a dinner date.
